Argentina again threatens Falklands' oil companies with legal actions, this time in London

Saturday, April 18th 2015 - 09:20 UTC
Full article 117 comments

Argentina's Secretary of State for Malvinas Affairs, Daniel Filmus, defended Argentina´s sovereignty rights over the Falkland Islands in a speech he delivered in London condemning UK´s recent decision to increase its military presence in the South Atlantic, outlined the scope of the criminal lawsuit against oil companies 'illegally' operating in Falklands/Malvinas waters and warned of the environmental risks these activities entail.

    Ho Ho!

    Slightly misleading title:
    Filmus gave the speech in London, he didn't file the charges there.

    Have the charges only been filed in Argentina? That is not clear.

    The UK may have nobly given him the platform to speak, but I can't see any British Court accepting this.

    Argentina and the UK do not enjoy strong links.
    We have diplomatic relations but these are currently hanging by a thread.
    As for the American Snowden....Argentina would be foolish to believe anything that comes out of this Putin puppets mouth.
    Simply attempting to have UK and USA businessmen arrested and extradited to Argentina would represent an escalation of the dispute, the consequences of which could be serious and far reaching for Argentinians.
    Once again very poor Judgement from Mrs Kirchner.

    Silly Argie Liar- Just like all most who live there of .

    Lie 1.
    There has been No and neither is any Increase in Military defence in the Islands.All that is being done is some buildings and stystems now 30 years old are being replaced as they are no longer fit for purpose - and a new School is being built!
    Force levels have actually DECREASED in the last 10-15years.

    Lie 2.
    Environmental Risk - All operations in the Islands EEZ are 100% under the control of the Islands Govt - who insist they are operated to the top level of current European North sea Standards - Filmus tell us - how to those rate alongside argie standards please?

    Lie 3 - An oil Spill would cause pollution to Argentina mainland within 20 days!! Bullshit - look at the prevailing winds and currents! Tests and studies have actually shown that one on the current drilling area could actually be at least 20 days before it even hit north Falklands - IF it did at all.
    What wincer facilities and kit exists on ships in Rio Gallegos and Rio Grande ready for instant use then?

    Lie 4- Arg only wants peace- Then why did your last Defence Minsister publicly state that it was ONLY the current Br Military garrison that was preventing Arg military from re-taking the Islands.
    Why does Arg still occasionally sent an Air Force Aircraft towards the Islands until it spots a British Fighter scrambled to come towards it?

    Why then have you never issued a formal public apology to the people of the islands for the military invasion of 1982?

    the only valid response from the whole south america to these squatters, thieves, arrivistes and go-getters, must be isolating them in the most radical manner.

    no more flights to or from the islets to south american countries, and that, of course, includes chilotelandia, now ruled by a decent fat chilota.

    the cost will be that no argentine will be able to visit the graves of the fallen soldiers in malvinas, but i guess we can do it no problema.

    and of course a massive ban for british vessels to dock in south american ports is mandatory.

    as they wisely say, england has nothing to do in south america.

    “as they wisely say, england has nothing to do in south america.” For once, I totally agree with you. England - I suppose you mean the United Kingdom/Great Britain - has no interest in South America other than to maintain friendly social and trade relations with the many nations in that sub continent.

    However, if you include the Falkland Islands in South America then you are totally and absolutely mistaken. Not even geographically does the archipelago belong to South America and it is well beyond all maritime limits as defined by the United Nations.

    Argentina signed an international treaty guaranteeing the weekly service from Chile, and although it would not be the first time that Argentina might violate an agreement, it would result in serious repercussions and international condemnation. DAP airlines would then most likely set up a replacement service flying from Punta Arenas skirting the Argentine airspace to the south. Longer, but easily doable. It's already been studied.

    If it is geopolitical, then they are one of the British territories in that region.

    Argentina is a S. American country with no history or presence in that region.

It's sad really that he's so envious of my country's success in now being far superior to his failed state. Forty years ago, his country had a far higher per capita income, a better literacy rate, superior schools and universities, far better medical facilities, a much more robust economy, a far better credit rating and certainly a better Navy and Air Force. Today it's completely the opposite! Argentines are quickly following the path of Venezuela and will soon sink to the level of nations such as Zimbabwe.

    “do you think that because they are islands they do not belong to south america,” not only do I know their not, the ICJ says they're not. Here's the reality thus: ”International Court of Justice (ICJ) in the North Sea continental shelf cases, in which Denmark and the Netherlands based their claim inter alia on the doctrine of proximity, i.e., that the part of the continental shelf closest to the part of the state in question falls automatically under that state's jurisdiction. In these cases the ICJ rejected any contiguity type of approach. As for continuity, it is argued, the 1958 Geneva Convention on the Continental Shelf and Contiguous Zone, Article 1, now contained in the 1982 Law of the Sea Convention, Article 76, does not support the view that coastal states have sovereignty over islands above the continental shelf. On the contary it laid down doctrine that islands had their own “continental shelves,” p.74 The Falklands/Malvinas Case Breaking the Deadlock in the Anglo-Argentine... By Roberto C. Laver

    Ironically I once spoke with some DAP pilots in Stanley who told me that they were not to keen on Argentines, and were delighted to tell me about the RAF aircraft painted up in Chilean air force colours in 1982. They also hoped to have seen RAF Phantoms and Buccaneers in Chile but the Chilean government would not go that far .When talking to Punta Arenas ATC, they were quite proud to point out that RAF Nimrods had been refuelled there in 1982.

    And if flying round Argentine air space cost more, the Islanders would no doubt foot the bill, and I doubt the Chileans would forgo the £millions they get from the Islands-Argentina not too hot on geography are they?

    Yes, air flights would continue and there would be no longer the inconvenient stop in Argentina, so flight time would be more or less the same. LAN would not be a part of he service because the Argentine government would put tremendous difficulties up against LAN Argentina. What Argentines also fail to forget is that Chile has an an ATLANTIC coast and has overflight access south of the middle of the Beagle Channel.

    It's unfortunate due to political pressure that our politicians mimic that “Las Malvinas” belongs to our whining neighbors, but few Chileans take them seriously. Most of us still vividly remember 1978.

    IdiotCedron: it has been stated elsewhere and many times to you slow-witted idiots that the Falkland Islands are not on the S. American tectonic plate. You may have heard of “geology”, it's a science that educated people study. No, it is not part of South America.
    Stop flights from South America? There would be a diplomatic outcry from Chile. You've tried it before and it wasn't a great idea. Stop RGs visiting? Fine. They are quite possibly the rudest, most discourteous visitors the islands get. I wouldn't be sorry to see the end of them, but your friend Filmus has said he will be visiting (looking forward to meeting him).
    RGland was offered in early on and they said that under no circumstances would they go into business with the Falkland Islands and that there was no oil or gas anyway. Odd how they want in now.
    Environmental issues? Fracking seems to be OK in RGland, they aren't too bothered with environmental issues when it suits them. They've been drilling oil in the North Sea for 50 years and there have been very few monumental problems.

    They want to steal themselves back to greatness by not paying their debts and seize the natural resources of the South Atlantic.

    The failed country once ranked a century ago among the seven richest in the world, after the likes of Australia, Britain and the United States, but ahead of France, Germany and Italy. Chile was its poor neighbor and Buenos Aires was the “Paris” of South America. When I first entered the Naval Academy, both Argentina's Navy and Air Force were the best in Latin America.

    But as noted in the other thread, Argentina is not pushing it's claim “in all available” forums at all. In fact it is conspicuously not pushing its claim in the only forum that could materially alter the status quo, although it has had almost 100 years in which it could have done so. Meanwhile, its systematic attempts to denigrate the islanders and undermine their economy are neither diplomatic nor peaceful, and if anything have only further reduced any possibility Argentina ever had of bringing its claim to fruition. Most curious of all is that Argentina systematically and repeatedly rejects dialogue and negotiation, while loudly proclaiming that's all it wants.

    Isn't it about time to wonder why Argentina's behaviour is so consistently and frequently in opposition to its claimed goal?

    which clearly shows the Falkland Islands and South Georgia Islands as being UK territories NOT Argentine. But as the map also shows the southern portions of the both the Atlantic and the Pacific Oceans it does not prove your point.

    You cant ”recover” the Falklands, you have NEVER owned them, other by military action, and the UN backed the UK's right to kick you off them again.

    The peaceful, diplomatic way to have ANYTHING to do with the Falklands is to talk to the Falklands Islanders .

    When you can grasp those fundamentals you will get to have a say, until then you are just spouting government rhetoric with no real concerns or thoughts toward the Islands.

    Clearly you cannot understand a simple ruling by the ICJ, that nearness to SA has absolutely no bearing on the matter.It's probably the seventh time troll, I've rebuffed that utterance. ”International Court of Justice (ICJ) ...based their claim inter alia on the doctrine of proximity, i.e., that the part of the continental shelf closest to the part of the state in question falls automatically under that state's jurisdiction. In these cases the ICJ rejected any contiguity type of approach. As for continuity, it is argued, the 1958 Geneva Convention on the Continental Shelf and Contiguous Zone, Article 1, now contained in the 1982 Law of the Sea Convention, Article 76, does not support the view that coastal states have sovereignty over islands above the continental shelf. On the contary it laid down doctrine that islands had their own “continental shelves,” p.74 The Falklands/Malvinas Case Breaking the Deadlock in the Anglo-Argentine...By Roberto C. Laver

    @19. Hey ho, a real NAZI. 'our magnificent airspace'. Is that the same airspace that will enable us to drop bombs and launch missiles? From aircraft that you can't see?

    “But nobody can prevent Argentina from pushing its claim in all available forums.”

    It is not using all forums-Timmerman was offered talks in the UK in 2013 but refused because Islanders were present-this is despite Argentina claiming that UN resolution 2065 is still relevant.

    It is in the Islander's interests to be present at any meetings to discuss their future, yet Timmerman refused to meet them(because he has never read Resolution 2065).

    This was a golden chance for Timerman to persuade the Islanders that being Argentine was a good idea, but he passed this forum up.

    This was an 'available forum' which Argentina did not pursue, so Argentina's claim to pursue 'every' forum is a clear untruth.

    As an educated and reasonable Argentine, you may disagree with the Chilean version of history, but prior to the 1879 Guerra del Pacífico, the entire southern Patagonia was a part of Chile. (Argentina blackmailed Chile to give up the region or fight.) Therefore any Spanish inherited rights of the Falklands would have rightfully belonged to Chile. After an exhaustive review of all maps prior to 1879, you'll find none showing the Falklands pertaining to be a part of any South American country which completely negates the delusional rantings of our glue sniffing la Campora bed pan cleaning mentally challenged and pathetically ignorant pathological lying troll “Paulcedron” who's currently transitioning through gender reassignment.

    There are three types of Argentines inhabiting what was once a civilized, democratic, prosperous and respected nation.

    -Well educated hard working citizens that are appalled by their country's decline.
    -Typical Argentines that are disappointed in the Peronist politicians and will not probably vote for them in the next elections because their economic situation is presently lousy.
    -The massive ignorant politically brainwashed economic parasites that follow the la Cámpora banners of national corruption, deceit and international theft.

    “Paulcedron” belongs to the third group and is hallucinating as usual due to his hormonal gender reassignment delusions affecting the few working brain cells he has functioning. The troll brilliantly asks #59: “...do you know how many continents exist?” The correct answer varies from 6 to 7 depending on which educational system you were taught in, but in the Cámpora Peronist mentality it really doesn't matter as all they want is to use whatever ridiculous excuse imaginable to press their mythical claims to the South Atlantic, including Antarctica.

    You must be new to the field to the field of geography. Since there are many Islands that exist, and by that very fact are not part of any continent. For example Greenland, Iceland all of the Caribbean Islands, are not considered part of the American continent; which include Cuba which is just over 160 kms from the Florida Keys. Moreover, the ICJ has ruled that it does not support the view that coastal states have sovereignty over islands above the continental shelf. On the contary it laid down doctrine that islands have their own “continental shelves”. So as we like to say “Close, but no cigar”.

    As I mentioned earlier, it's lamentable that the biological procreators of both glue sniffing mentally deranged la Campora trolls on this thread were not given a free helicopter ride in the 1970s...

    Chile actually has a large international scientific community here famously renowned for their research into environment, oceanic and climate studies, fisheries, forestry, astronomic studies, agriculture and more. The Chilean National Commission for Scientific and Technological Research, CONICYT, has been the main driving force for the development of science and technology in the region with an annual budget exceeding over a billion and a half Dollars for research. Only Brazil spends more in Latin America. (Note: that does not include private spending, which amounts in the BILLIONS.)

    Actually due to our national reputation for a lack of corruption, cooperative free trade relations, excellent military cooperation and a large segment of English fluent university graduates (FYI: from some of the highest ranked universities in Latin America - note: The Universidad Católica is first ranked of the top 20 and we have 3 others in the top 20. [Argentinia has NONE in the list] ...not that I'm boasting.)

    Chile is home to a large number of large telescopes including the largest in the world, the Extremely Large Telescope with an astounding 39.3 meter diameter primary mirror. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/European_Extremely_Large_Telescope
    Also under construction is the enormous Giant Magellan Telescope planned for completion in 2020.

    Well if there was a perfect example of the Argentine decline in their once lauded educational standards, #78 above certainly shows why most of the populace has a “screw loose” when it comes to geography: What continent does Albania belong to? Africa?

    Chile has become a key player in the world of international astrophysics due to the installation of powerful telescopes which have the clearest skies in the world. Our Instituto Millenium de Astrofísica of the Pontifícia Universidad Católica de Chile is considered one of the top ten astronomy centers in the world.

    The European Extremely Large Telescope which I mentioned earlier, is being built in the north of Chile and will be inaugurated in 2020, by which time the Chile will be hosting 70% of the global observation surface of high power optical and infrared telescopes in the world! By agreement, Chilean scientists have 10% of the observing time available at each of the telescopes installed in the country.

    Meanwhile, we should all congratulate the Peronist government for nearly bankrupting Argentina's scientific research as well as international stature.

    Oh Paul

    There you go and prove your Argentinean education.

    Thank you so much.

    Oceania is NOT a continent! It is a region. The continent in that area is AUSTRALIA.

    New Zealand is part of the submerged continent known as Zealandia.

    And Hawaii is not part of any continent.

    What you have confused (due to extremely thorough Argentinean education) is TECTONIC PLATES.

    TECTONIC PLATES do not equate to a continent. Continents float on top of tectonic plates.

    “so the list of continents, where the ALL THE FUCKING LANDS OF THE WORLD ARE INCLUDED, is:

    africa
    asia
    europe
    north america
    central america
    south america
    oceania
    antártida.”

    If that is how you wish to see the world then fine. However your division is more social that geological.

    As for tectonic plates, the major ones are known as:
    African Plate
    Antarctic Plate
    Eurasian Plate
    Indo-Australian Plate
    North American Plate
    Pacific Plate
    South American Plate

    Then there are secondary and tertiary plates.

    Some plates are CONTINENTAL and some plates are OCEANIC!

    So South America is a CONTINENTAL PLATE.
    The Pacific Ocean sits above an OCEANIC PLATE.

    No where will you find the Pacific Ocean included as part of the North American continent nor Asia nor Australian. So by our own definition you have failed.

    There is is smaller plates like the Scotia Plate. This is not part of the South America plate and it may have South Georgia on it. Or they may even be part of their own microplate. The South Sandwich Islands are part of the South Sandwich Plate. However these islands are not on the South American Plate.

    Falkland Islands may be on the South American Plate but they are not part of the South American continent.

    I know it is difficult. Please feel free to call me all the names you can conjure from your unemployed brain.

    It doesn't change reality nor your level of education.

    “As a cultural construct, the concept of a continent may go beyond the continental shelf to include oceanic islands and continental fragments. In this way, Iceland is considered part of Europe and Madagascar part of Africa. Extrapolating the concept to its extreme, some geographers group the Australasian continental plate with other islands in the Pacific into one continent called Oceania.

    So if a continent is a cultural concept, then I'm sure you'll have no difficulty in understanding that in our culture the Falklands aren't part of your cultural continent, so that culturally as well as practically speaking, you can jolly well keep your thieving mitts out of where they don't belong?

    Thank goodness we've cleared that up at last.

    “As a cultural construct, the concept of a continent may go beyond the continental shelf to include oceanic islands and continental fragments. In this way, Iceland is considered part of Europe and Madagascar part of Africa. Extrapolating the concept to its extreme, some geographers group the Australasian continental plate with other islands in the Pacific into one continent called Oceania. This divides the entire land surface of the Earth into continents or quasi-continents.”

    As is usual with your nonsensical way of reasoning you fail to identify the source of this ”cultural“ concept - it must be from The Guardian or The Independent or some such totally unreliable source of intelligence.

    It is beyond belief that a geographical feature which is ”fixed and tangible“ can possibly, or even sensibly, be deemed to be a ”cultural” concept.

    “Argentina does not pose a threat to either the UK or the inhabitants of the Malvinas Islands.”
    According to these experts the UK opinion is not only there's; here's a definitive opinion on the issue.

    NATO Review
    Deterrence: what it can (and cannot) do
    ...while London kept emphasising that the Falklands were British, the military Junta in Buenos Aires became convinced that such statements were mere lip service...Deterrence had failed because the United Kingdom had ignored an important factor. Striking a tough pose while at the same time reducing the means to make good on it undermines one of deterrence’s most important ingredients: credibility.

    “We will apply the full weight of Argentine legislation and international law in order to prevent the resources that belong to 40 million Argentine citizens from being taken away”, the Argentine official stated.

    Just a publicity stunt by the Argentine regime who know full well they can't do anything to these company's operating beyond their jurisdiction & with international law on their side.

    the source, which any educated ass should recognize immediately is, of course:
    Lewis, Martin W.; Kären E. Wigen (1997). The Myth of Continents: a Critique of Metageography. Berkeley: University of California Press.
    and the chapter, of course is:
    The joining of Australia with various Pacific islands to form the quasi continent of Oceania ...

    but it is clear, not only that you have never read it in your puta life, but also, that you dont have the slightest clue about its existence.

    so, the conclusion about all this conversation is that the bennys, english wannabes and stuff are immensely ignorant.

    So in spite of all your bluster and hyperbole, at the end of the day the only definition that is relevant is a legal one to wit: ”(ICJ) in the North Sea continental shelf cases, in which Denmark and the Netherlands based their claim inter alia on the doctrine of proximity...the ICJ rejected any contiguity type of approach...the 1982 Law of the Sea Convention, Article 76, does not support the view that coastal states have sovereignty over islands above the continental shelf. On the contary it laid down doctrine that islands had their own “continental shelves,” p.74 The Falklands/Malvinas Case Breaking the Deadlock in the Anglo-Argentine...By Roberto C. Laver
    So the ICJ has spoken, islands are neither attached to a coastal state, yet alone a continent. If you get my continental drift.

    It sound like Lewis, Martin W, was trying to reinvent the wheel, as the area had already been defined as Australasia: the region that consists of Australia, New Zealand, New Guinea, and the neighboring islands of the Pacific Ocean. Or, Oceania which was, “an area that encompasses the islands of the Pacific Ocean and adjacent seas.” Were the islands that where not neighboring Australasia.

    @62. 'A continent is one of several very large landmasses on Earth. They are generally identified by convention rather than any strict criteria, with up to seven regions commonly regarded as continents. These are (from largest in size to smallest): Asia, Africa, North America, South America, Antarctica, Europe, and Australia. Got it, shit licker?
    @67. The Caribbean is a region that consists of the Caribbean Sea, its islands (some surrounded by the Caribbean Sea and some bordering both the Caribbean Sea and the North Atlantic Ocean), and the surrounding coasts. The region is southeast of the Gulf of Mexico and the North American mainland, east of Central America, and north of South America.
    Doesn't seem to be part of a continent.
    @69. An argie fart list.
    @78. You seem to have a problem with comprehension and the geo-political. For instance, 97% of Turkey is in Asia. The Falkland Islands do not wish to be part of the shit-pit south america. Thus, they are South Atlantic Islands. Although, to be fair, they probably wouldn't mind but for the mindless, semi-humanoid animal life.
    @99. Thank you. And thus the Falkland Islands are NOT part of south america. Culturally, morally or politically.

    Unfortunately perhaps paulcedron

    And on his logic, one would have to agree with him,

    All these crusts and shelves makes one hungry,

    But if we use paulcedrons logic, and agree that all land is attached to its base, and that base in turn is actually attached to the planet earth,

    Then technically Argentina then, has a claim to the whole world, seeing as we are all attached beneath the waves,

    Just a drowning thought..

    So Paul finally agrees that Oceaniais a CULTURAL CONSTRUCT.

    Once you detach the definition of continents from the geological then Paul has successfully argued that the Falkland Islands are not part of South America.

    It amazes me no end how often these Argentinean educated posters actually end up making my argument.

    I hate to say this but paulcedron is correct that the Falkland Islands are geographically part of South America in that they reside on the South American Continental plate, although the good news is that they do have there own plateau or sub plate called the Falklands Plateau. South Georgia and St. Helena for example are not part of any continent as they are formed by oceanic plates, normally volcano's or volcanic ridges.

    Express, Jan 20, 2015: UK tells Argentina...
    The Foreign Office insists the Falklands are not subject to the law as Argentina does not have sovereignty over the islands....
    ...An Foreign Office spokesman said: “Argentine domestic law does not apply to the Falkland Islands, so this is a baseless gesture intended to deter legitimate commercial activity. We are confident it will not succeed.
    ”It is shameful that Argentina is once again adopting bullying tactics in an attempt to strangle the Falkland Islands economy.
    “The British Government fully supports the rights of the Falkland Islanders to develop their hydrocarbons sector for their economic benefit.
    ”This right is an integral part of their right of self-determination, which is expressly contained in the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.
    “All hydrocarbons activities on the continental shelf of the Falkland Islands are regulated by legislation of the Falkland Islands Government, in strict accordance with the United Nations Convention of the Law of the Sea.”
